Creative thinking and Emergence

Here am I again!

Creative thinking is, in some points of view, a way of climbing the steps of a better level of awareness. Edward de Bono is regarded as the leading authority in the world in the field of creative thinking. This author, in his remarkable book “Six Thinking Hats introduces us to a concept he calls Provocative operation. A kind of operator that allows us to break the logic of un idea, opening the field to a complete new system of rules and permitting new ideas, as if we were in another level of perception. This is an exercise under “the emergence phenomenon” I evoked in Transdisciplinarity and levels of awareness when I stated that “ emergence leads to new levels of reality and awareness”

I leave you with a definition of emergence given by Professor Yaneer Bar-Yam:

Emergence is...
  1. ...what parts of a system do together that they would not do by themselves: collective behavior.
  2. ...what a system does by virtue of its relationship to its environment that it would not do by itself: e.g. its function.
  3. ...the act or process of becoming an emergent system
You can go on reading a little more about that, trough the article Concepts in Complex Systems.

Finally, let’s end this post, exploring emergence.

Hi dear Friend there in Capo Verde.
I found your blog by surfing on the site of neoworks and I find it interesting to consult. I hade only the time to read a few posts but I will come back to read other ones.
I have friends all over the world because I am a radio-amateur here in Belgium and this gives me the opportunity to méét people from all over the world on the frequencies.
I have also many contacts on the different continents because I am a labels collector and I have so far a collection amouting to +/- 500.000 different labels and I am of course always and still looking for more.

My wife and little Paulina are my parish. Stekel, Die Sprache des Traumes , which I was unable to utilize, there is a list of the most common sexual symbols, the object of which is to prove that all sexual symbols can be bisexually used.. This is probably due to certain relations of energy into which we have no insight.. Abner felt the lump of gum come loose and slip down a cold spine.. I have not entered into the cognate problem why the dream thoughts also experience distortion by the censor when they abandon the progressive continuation to consciousness and choose the path of regression.. But the dream thoughts run ironically. It has a bad effect, we find, on their health and spirits to disappoint them of their little pleasantries.. But, my dear, I whaled half the hide off'n him for it.. The foundation of dream life is for them a peculiar state of psychical activity, which they even celebrate as elevation to some higher state.. He had just opened the door and the moonlight streamed over him as he stood, turning back to us.. It was as excruciatingly funny as it had ever been, when his boat nosed its way into a great flock of ducks idling upon the water, to see the mad paddling haste of those nearest him, the reproachful turn of their heads, or, if he came too near, their spattering run out of water, feet and wings pumping together as they rose from the surface, looking for all the world like fat little women, scurrying with clutched skirts across city streets.. We found this holding true for the dream content, which gives the dream thought its changed expression by means of disfigurement.. But it was an engagement that the Colonel--as devoted to the fair sex as he was to the code--was no less prompt in accepting.. Sorrel's only half-way to the color of her top-knot, an' it do seem like red oughter to soot red.. Believing that he had undertaken the campaign out of greed for gold, she caused molten gold to be poured into the throat of the corpse.. Disappointed, bewildered, cut to the quick, yet as much in love as ever, he could only in bitter silence turn over in his thoughts the issue of his cherished dream; now persuading himself that Ellen's denial was the effect of a sudden bashfulness, now inveighing against the fickleness of the sex, as all men do when they are angry with any one woman in particular.. We are from Chicago, you know.. For my part, ma'am, she continued, turning to Mrs.. I want to bid on that! This here jug hain't fer sale at no price, Uncle Billy emphatically announced, nipping all negotiations right in the bud.. She concluded he must have taken a counter-poison, and she was not slow in guessing its source...

Other wishes proceeding from the repression probably escape us, because we are unable to analyze this dream.. But when Dennis took Mrs.. I did not find those I came to clearer sighted than those I had left behind.. In answering the question as to what provokes the dream, as to the connection of the dream, in the daily troubles, we must say, in terms of the insight given us by replacing the manifest latent dream content: The dream does never trouble itself about things which are not deserving of our concern during the day, and trivialities which do not trouble us during the day have no power to pursue us whilst asleep.. Miss Lydia was a plump, little old maid of thirty-five, with smoothly drawn, tightly twisted hair that made her look still older.. Had their intentions but been known, this inferential invitation would have been most welcome.. Polly declared it was just like Haliburton's Latin conversation with the Hungarian minister, of which he is very fond of telling. They were large, brown, and soft, yet filled with an extraordinary penetration and prescience. He answered by describing pictures.. , is likewise incapable of consciousness, whereas the second we term Forec.. Fluker's manner, and this enhanced his praise of the house.. The man wrote, in a round flourish, Edward Eastman Ellsworth, wife, and son.. Doubtless you also know the gruesome poem by Lenau, which puts infanticide and the prevention of children on the same plane.. If, according to Scherner, the dream seems to play with a symboling representation of the body, we know that this is the work of certain unconscious phantasies which have probably given in to sexual emotions, and that these phantasies come to expression not only in dreams but also in hysterical phobias and in other symptoms.. But presently all eyes were fixed on the Colonel, who certainly made up in his appearance any deficiency of his fair client.. As a matter of fact, the elder would have been a confirmed drunkard twenty years before had his wife been less strong-minded.. Either he dodged, however, or my aim was inaccurate; for all I accomplished was the demolition of the crystal which protected the dial of the clock upon the mantelpiece.. Then they, hiding behind counters and suspended cloaks, laughed and snickered until they reconvulsed the elder's vis-a-vis, who had been making desperate efforts to resume her demure appearance.. They stole glances at the clock on the mantel. On the contrary, the principle of pain comes into play, and causes the Forec...
